WhatsApp To Ween Supported Phones In 2020

Facebook is culling the devices supported by WhatsApp. As of February 1st, 2020, any device running iOS 8 (or earlier) or Android 2.3.7 (or earlier) will no longer be supported. This means if you have an iPhone 4 (or older) or an Android device made prior to 2011 that is running WhatsApp, you’ll no longer be supported come next year.

The company says they are not forcibly uninstalling the app. it is simply being removed from app stores, but they note functionality will stop at some point. It’s not a huge surprise by any means, but will undoubtedly inconvenience some users, particularly those in developing nations where WhatsApp is quite popular.
